    Hello,
    New to this forum and was wondering if anyone could tell if the attached photo is a bedbug, flea or some other type of bug. We’ve been bit in the bedroom a bit and I went to do some laundry when I found two of these little, yellow bugs crawling around the laundry bag.

    Nervous we have some crawling about... even more nervous about it being an infestation and would appreciate any assistance so I can move forward.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi,

    Sorry to inform you that is a juvenile bedbug or close relative.

    It has been 3 - 4 days since it last fed so it may be a recent introduction.

    Try not to panic, keeping calm and focused help massively.

    Start reading the FAQ and look at the area for live samples, cast skins and faecal traces.

    It may seem daunting but at this stage we need to get you up to speed to be able to work out the correct options for you.

    Hope that helps.
